Webinar: Blockchain in Logistics and the Supply Chain
- Jul 09, 2020
To increase awareness and understanding of how blockchain technologies will impact your sector and business, the Blockstart partners launched a free training programme for SMEs in the healthcare, agrofood, logistic and supply chain sectors.
This webinar provides an overview of current trends in blockchain technology in logistics and supply chain sectors. In addition, we share the common challenges we identified during interviews with companies in logistics and talk about the potential products or services blockchain technology could unlock.
What you will learn:
- Why blockchain is different from other technologies that have been applied before to logistical and supply chain challenges.
- How blockchain is in a strong position to address logistical and supply chain challenges, including data integrity and security, and data transparency possibilities.
- The key challenges supply chains still face and how blockchain can help transform challenges into opportunities.
